Recording artist and entertainer Lena Prima, youngest daughter of music legend Louis Prima, returns to the Suncoast Showroom to perform popular songs recorded by her father along with original hits, January 15 and 16.
“That Old Black Magic,” “Jump Jive ‘An Wail,” and “Sing Sing Sing” are among the songs made popular by her father that Prima will perform at the Suncoast, the latter featuring Lena on the drums. For the evening of music, joined by her seven-piece band, Prima will also perform tunes from her recently released album Since The Storm.
Born in Las Vegas to famous singer, songwriter and musician Louis Prima and classically trained singer Gia Maione Prima, young Lena Prima literally grew up on stage singing, dancing and touring with her parents during her summer vacations. She graduated from Clark High School in Las Vegas and continued her education at UNLV where she studied art, music and dance. Singing became her full-time career in 1991, touring with bands The Checkmates and The Spiral Staircase.
In 2000, Prima began a two-year engagement of Louis Prima, That’s My Dad! at the Sahara Hotel and Casino, where her father had performed in the early 50s. With three albums recorded and released, Prima has performed on stages throughout the U.S. In addition to an award-winning performance career, Prima is an accomplished artist and jewelry designer.
